Species to look out for
UK butterflies bounced back in 2018 following a string of poor years, thanks in part to last year’s heatwave summer, a study has revealed.
In July 2018 Prime Minister Theresa May announced that the Government would bring forward an Environment Bill. Butterfly Conservation (BC) understand that Defra are working on the draft of the Bill, to cover England and reserved matters in devolved countries, and this will be published before Christmas.
One of Europe’s most threatened butterflies has been discovered breeding on a site in Carmarthenshire where it has not been seen for more than 50 years, Butterfly Conservation (BC) can reveal.
